Mr. Frye, I thank you for 3 things.
1. Historical value- this kinoscope of 1955 marked the only time Henry Fonda and Humphey Bogart ever acted in anything together & Lauren Becal and Humphey last appearence in a completed work,
2. Historical Document-
When you consider it was made over 50 years and the original production of Petriied Forest made H. Bogart an actor and made Jack Warner sit up and pay attention to Mr. Bogart's demands as well as launched the careers of Jack Klugman and Richard Jaekcal(in the 55 production)
3. Historical moment- this production was one of the last productions H. Bogart did. He did one more production of "The bigger they Are", which wrapped as quickly as possible because of cancer was spreading in Bogart's body. In 4 months he would die.
So, I thank you "Dwright Frye" for this murky but enjoyable telecast.

Just watched it and reviewed it... what a great show to watch on a rainy Oregon day.
